Farmer-owned since 1964. Learn more »

preserving a way of life for ourmembers and communities

When you're a farmer-owned organization, the local growers are what drives your business and how you do it. We listen to the valley's farmers, our eight member board of directors, our knowledgeable sales staff working tirelessly in the fields every day, and you, our customer.

We understand to meet your needs and to be a world-class cooperative we must ensure the economic viability of our members, customers, and communities.

To achieve this, our business model includes providing the highest quality of service to all farm sizes, reinvesting profits from our partnerships in the form of annual patronage, and ensuring our Co-op's values align with your needs. Following this, we can provide the most advanced toolbox, at the best value, to ensure a successful crop from year-to-year.

What is a Co-op?

1. A group of individuals who share similar problems and goals is looking for a solution.

2. These individuals pull from their resources to increase their buying power.

3. A board of directors is appointed to develop and administer systems in its member's best interests.

4. Farmers can now trust that they can purchase what they need when they need it.

5. As the co-op profits from sales, the growers receive patronage at the end of the year on products they needed to purchase anyway.

6. Other profits are put into a revolving fund, supporting future growth that ensures the co-op continues to prosper for the community and for generations to come.
